hello vrom Chesapeake VA.

Hello everyone. I signed onto this site back in 2012 trying to learn as much as I could before we bought our camper. Well a few weeks back we bought a 2007 27BHSS down in Jacksonville NC for a song and dance. Well lets just say this camper was not in very good shape on the inside. The camper was bought by a dealer from a auction site and I guess the last owner lived in it and SMOKE heavily in it.. It took 1.5 gal of commercial degreaser and 12 rolls of paper towels just to remove the yellow nicotine that was everywhere. I've ripped up all the carpet and vinyl and am having the upholstery on the dinette and sofa redone. The camper has good bones and only has some minor water damage to the fwd and aft outer corners of the slide floor and I hope I've fixed the leaks. Finished painting all the walls to make the DW happy. will add newer pictures soon.

Thanks for all the kind words.. here are some new pictures as of today. as you can see I didn't paint the bunk area mostly cause I didn't want to lay my 230lbs fat ass on the bunk beds while I painted the walls.. plus I feel the wall paper would be easier to clean if the boys get them dirty.
